Well, spoiler alert, New Vegas with the Lonesome Road DLC allows you to launch nukes at nations, with the option to just fucking nuke both military factions in the game.

So i've been emulating this game for the past 2 months and i'm at the final boss atm.
What's everyone thoughts on this game, i don't think i've ever seen it being discussed here desu. I really enjoyed the game but i felt like there's a difficulty spike around chapter 4 or is it just me?
Also i know that theres a 3DS remake but the art feels very bland and looks too much like a gacha mobile game, aside from that what's the main difference between it?

Most powerful party member thread
IMG_6736
Since we have a shit party member thread I figure this would also be a fun topic for debating.
I’ll start with Dogi. My reasons for picking him over Cruxie is that despite popular opinion on Ys Seven as a game saying Cruxie is better due to the damage boost, Dogi has much higher multipliers than her on all his moves and his EXTRA is the hardest hitting attack in the game.
Realistically tho, even if Dogi still outdamages her even without the attack boost, you should be using both for most bosses.

Why did this game decide to go into a le heckin epic fairytale direction? The game looks far too cutesy for it. Function must follow form. If you want Mother to be serious? You need to make it serious. Design and all.
The world of Earthbound/Mother is much too colorful and stylistic to be taken so seriously, and in no way comparable to the more softer, fantastical story book worlds that Don Bluth crafted.

I really like the artstyle.music and the mood of the game but i feel like the gameplay is too confusing(3rd person real time strategy where you build your own skill set instead of choosing mage/knight etc at start of game and having pre chosen ability trees you choose certain missions for example you do the first mission for Persephone and unlock the wrath spell and Druid,ranger and shrike units but if you do the first mission for Charnel you unlock the Insect swarm spell and Scythe,Fallen,Locus units and thats too confusing to me i want a simpler gameplay with a similar artstyle and music etc. but simpler gameplay more like a rpg.) for me i want something simpler to play but with the same kind of mood.

In hopes of monetary compensation? Because it is the right thing to do? Pure curiosity? Or something that just ended up on your porch, and you are already mixed up in it? Also favorite side quests, and why. Consider using spoilers (ctrl+s) if you think there is a twist.

>if I raid a space station, my relationship with the faction that owns that space station will plummet

>raid pirate and luddic path space stations for narcotics
>find planets with a high concentration of miners, and sell.

good turn based rpgs
maxresdefault
Look, I'm gonna level with you guys. I'm old, retarded and lazy and I dont wanna have to think when I'm playing a rpg.

Sometimes I just wanna chill out, drink a beer and play a chill turn based rpg. Essentially watching a movie with grinding aspects in it. It seems like all "turn based" rpgs these days involve some kind of action bar bullshit where you can attack when the bar fills up or some other weird shit about positioning characters in a field etc. I'm looking for some games like FFX, DQ11 or P4.

Alternatively why is the genre of turn based with decent stories dying?

here is the monster arena side game where you can pit party members and monsters you captured against other players. 20x better than any pokemon game to date
The things I wanted to happen in pokemon games happened in this game.

>destroying a monster creation factory
> badess teammate moments

What the fuck is wrong with rpg devs? They'll pump out shitty indie "jrpgs" and "roguelikes" all day and night, but none of them have the stones to assemble the money-printing machine a successor to daggerfall would be.
>it's too technically difficult
Daggerfall was made by like ten people thirty years ago. You'd barely need to update the graphics, just more mechanical complexity would be enough to make it popular
>it's too hard to make a good game out of it
Daggerfall put next to no effort into making a good game out of it. It's a fantasy adventure simulator. Simulate shit.
>no one will buy it
People love procgen games built around a progression curve but no story. People ate valheim up, and it was basically a shell of a game. This is exactly the kind of game zoomers enjoy, a self-directed mechanical grind with exploration

How to get better at learning RPGs' systems? I find myself getting stuck at games or simply feeling overwhelmed by trying to learn, and it sucks. Especially in Pathfinder WotR and Underrail lately, but even when it comes to Action RPGs like Nioh or Souls, I rely purely on the action game mechanics, which makes the game like 10 times more difficult.
I've never played a tabletop rpg, so I'm thinking of going back to simpler games like Pokemon or DQXI and writing out the rules, etc. Sort of trying to translate it into a Tabletop RPG version. I don't just want to do it because I wanna git gud at RPGs in general, I also want to do it as a game design exercise.

What the fuck dude? All I want is a decent woman. Why are all the male romance options so much better than the female ones? At least the dudes are relatively sane and not the epitome of pure evil (unsexy kind).

natural doctrine
This game got reviewed poorly because it's apparently super duper hard. Playing it now and it's certainly not been cake and the mechanics are a bit obtuse and it's a bit janky but I actually find myself kind of liking it. It's a real shame that so many reviewers are so thin skinned.

Playing Super Robot Wars X on the switch for the past year and finally made it to chapter 48. How the fuck do I beat this shit? You have to kill Doakdar and Fire Emperor in the same turn but getting both of their health low to manage that is a pain in the ass since Doakdar’s health regens 20 percent and the other dude at 10 percent. And no I’m not going to play on easy since I need the SR points.

Technically a mmo, but really, it's basically a single player game wrapped in the guise of a mmo. Thoughts? I think that the game, while flawed, was at least trying something new and the story /atmosphere was pretty good. It had some bad combat mechanics and the general public simply didn't accept it so Funsoft fucked what fanbase they had in the ass.

>It's actually good now

Holy shit. I just finished act 1. This game is incredible. It feels like a genuine true successor to VtMB. The presentation and voice acting are some of the best in a video game. With regards to writing, the characters are just BANGER after BANGER. I'm so glad I waited til now to experience this game in a finished state.

If you avoided this game at release, you need to try this game out now.

Can we ask for recs on this board? If so, what are some good NON ISOMETRIC RPG's in the last 10 years that this 30 year old boomer has probably missed?

The last good rpg's I played were honestly just KOTOR and LotR The 3rd age, VTMB, etc and then MMO's like WoW. I got back into DnD and playing oldschool tabletops but I'm by myself at the computer most of the time now so I'd love to be able to get into one that's more in line with the older ones.

Can't stand modern action RPG's since I have no reaction time at all and I'm shit at them, and isometric non-1st person games I lose immersion. Is it a dead genre? Seems like all the studios that would've made RPG's in that style just make 2d indie games because their cheap or go more mainstream with action elements and barely any RPG at all.

Pathfinder: Wrath of... melee dps build
XgTyLwpjtt_FTxYEeMLQh8R8MNwbaZ-9Or2eD3uHP4kKI3WB67Iapg4Vm9rQu0dvg8GtUWyy5ujrOxilO3Zzvzod
I'm looking for a powerful melee DPS build which is not a glass cannon. Tried half-orc/primalist but it didn't go as well as expected. Primalist is cool but orcs are not. And I'm not sure about multiclassing. Monk loses all his abilities if you wear armor and i want at least some armor on. Barbarian is the same as Primalist, just weaker. Maybe mix in some Armiger or Aldori stuff? I need ideas. Also, I'm going for a Legend mythic.

NG+ in JRPGs
tuning time
I just finished Stella Glow and it told me I should play one more time to get the true ending.
You only get boosted exp, money and extra bonding points.
Why is this allowed?
The story is the same.
All the gear I bought and the bonus objectives I finished didn't matter.
Any JRPG where NG+ is done better?

Ideas rarely explored by RPGs
goyy[1]
As in the title - post ideas or motives that are rarely used in RPGs, preferably with example of game that did it right. I'll begin:
>having high position in society from the start
Tyranny did it and it was refreshing. You start as high ranking official, not some murderhobo ascending to greatness.
>frame story - "story in a story" structure
I don't know any game that did it. I think it has great potential, I always think of book "Manuscript Found in Saragossa", it's great picaresque novel, that could be surprisingly well translated into game imo (my favourite story is about assassin with too strict honour code, which constantly gets him in trouble).
Beginning of "Age of Decadence" is somewhat similar, when you have entwined story with multiple characters (all playable classes) involved, but it's only in prologue. And in true frame story you would get through all stories in a single playthrough.
